    A group of students from South Bromsgrove High were given a taste of the Oxbridge life for a day at Trinity College, Oxford. This was the culmination of six weeks work the students had put in as part of the Brilliant Club initiative, which had been kindly funded by the Bromsgrove Rotary Club. After a day’s initiation at Warwick University the students met weekly with researcher, Helen Curley, to learn about her work in the data analysis of cancer samples. Doing their own analysis the students had to submit a 2000 word essay to be marked to university standard. Many were extremely pleased to receive first class or 2i (upper-second) grades.

    The students at South are off to a great start at the beginning of the new school year with their D.E.A.R. programme, designed to improve and extend reading abilities.  Drop Everything And Read is a ‘whole school’ initiative covering main school and sixth form students.    Every Monday PSD session is dedicated to quiet reading with students bringing in a favourite book, borrowing one from the Hub or using one of the books from a book box found in every classroom.    Jayme Allen In Yr9 said “Reading always helps me to clear my mind and avoid stress and Joe Ranford, also in Yr 9 said “It’s a great opportunity to read for pleasure in school every week.”  Staff are also using this dedicated reading time as an opportunity to delve into their favourite book with both staff and students reading together.’
